Disney World’s Caribbean Beach Resort has always been a fun, colorful and tropical resort. But after an extensive renovation ended in October 2018, Caribbean Beach arguably became an even better place to stay!
We’ve compiled a list of the FIVE things you should NOT miss at Caribbean Beach Resort!
Let’s get started!
After the renovation, Sebastian’s Bistro replaced what used to be Shutters Restaurant. The fan-favorite character from The Little Mermaid is the star of the show here, and you’ll also see subtle marine elements around the restaurant.
Sebastian’s primarily serves Caribbean-inspired cuisine and highlights on the menu include a Jumbo Lump Crab Cake and Caribbean Pull-Apart Rolls! We’ve had great experiences at Sebastian’s and we can definitely recommend it.
Many Disney World pool bars aren’t all that special or unique, but we truly love the Banana Cabana Pool Bar!
Like Geyser Point at Wilderness Lodge, Banana Cabana is SO much more than a pool bar; it’s a destination all on its own. It serves wonderful meals and Caribbean-inspired beverages in a casual, laid-back atmosphere.
We love the tropical ambiance of this open-air bar, and we’re big fans of the food and beverage menus as well! If you aren’t feeling up to a formal sit-down meal, Banana Cabana is a great option.
Pirate Cruise Adventures
Does your child crave adventure? Then the Islands of the Caribbean Pirate Cruise at Caribbean Beach Resort is perfect for them! For a fee of $39-$49, children ages 4-12 can set sail on a two-hour search for treasure. Voyages depart every Sunday, Friday, and Saturday from Caribbean Cay at 9:30 a.m., weather permitting. Once they arrive back on land, the “pirates” are treated to a delicious snack.
If your older child craves excitement, check out The Unsolved Mysteries of Barefoot Bay. This evening cruise is for kids ages 10-16 and sails every Thursday at 8:00 p.m. During the cruise, pirates embark on a scavenger hunt to unravel the mystery of Captain Calico’s disappearance. The cruise costs $39 and includes a snack.

Fuentes del Morro Pool
The Fuentes del Morro Pool at Caribbean Beach Resort is undoubtedly one of the best on Disney World property. It is themed so beautifully and fits right in with the rest of the resort.
Though it’s not quite as epic as Stormalong Bay at Yacht and Beach Club, it’s still pretty awesome. Themed like a Spanish fortress, this zero-entry pool features an awesome 102-foot waterslide! Whenever we’re there, we feel like we’ve stepped into a Pirates of the Caribbean movie and we are totally on board with that.
Don’t forget about the Pirate Rooms at Caribbean Beach! These rooms are themed to the nines and are so much fun. Each bed is designed to resemble a ship, while the furniture and floor look like they’d belong on a ship!
These rooms do typically run around $70 more per night than standard rooms, but they are wonderfully themed! If your kid wishes he was Captain Jack Sparrow, he’d feel right at home in a Pirate Room.
